    Product Description

    The Bose L1 Compact is the latest addition to the excellent Bose L1 family. On the bigger Bose Model 1 & Model 2 systems, the bass bins are separate to the main speaker system, but in the L1 Compact the bass bin has been cleverly integrated into the stand.

    The L1 Compact is about half the power of the Model 1 & Model 2 system, but by using the excellent line array speaker technology, the L1 Compact system will still happily produce live music in small venue (typically up to a max of 100-150 people depending on the sort of noise you want to make!).

    A Compact Line Array System

    The line array technology used in all the Bose L1 systems ensures that the volume of the speaker doesn't drop off so much as you move further from the speaker. This means the overall volume of the system does not need to be that high to reach the back of the venue.

    Another advantage with the L1 systems is that you can stand in front of the speaker column, with your microphone & experience virtually zero feedback problems. So not only is the Bose L1 Compact the most portable system we know of, it also removes the need for separate stage monitoring too!

    A Versatile Design

    There are so many uses for the Bose L1 Compact. Whilst most people will use this as a small live PA system, it's also excellent as an acoustic guitar amp, a keyboard amp, an electronic drum amp*, and for presentations. (* please note that for electronic drums we would only recommend the L1 Compact as a home use or rehearsal amp).

    Because the L1 Compact can be set up at 3 different heights you can always have the speaker section exactly where you want it - floor level, waist level or head level. And with a simple 2 channel mixer (1 mic input + 1 guitar/line input) built into the stand, you may not need anything else to start using the Bose Compact L1 system.
